1Embossed tape, reel, and traypackagingThis document outlines the dimensions for the tape, reel, and tray packaging of components used forNordic Semiconductor products.This document applies to the following series: nRF24nRF51nRF52nRF53nRF8000nRF9160Embossed tape, reel, and tray is used for transporting and storing electronic components. The packing isdesigned to feed components into automatic pick-and-place machines for surface mounting on PCBs. Thecomplete configuration consists of a carrier tape with pockets holding the individual components that aresealed by a cover tape.The tape, reel, and tray configurations of the nRF24, nRF51, nRF52, nRF53, nRF8000, and nRF9160 seriesproducts meet the current industry standards described in EIA-481: 8 mm through 200 mm EmbossedCarrier Taping and 8 mm through 200 mm Punched Carrier Taping of Surface Mount Components forAutomatic Handling. The loaded reels are shipped with a Humidity Indicator Card (HIC) and a bag ofdesiccant gel according to the JEDEC standard JSTD-033.1159720 1484

2Reel dimensionsReels containing sealed carrier tape follow the dimension requirements described in EIA-481. For thedetailed dimensions of the reel, refer to this standard. The reels are made of polystyrene and can berecycled.Most products come in one of two different sizes of reels. The size of the reel is indicated by the orderingcode that can be found in the product specification for each product.The following figure shows the markings on a typical loaded reel.Reel top sideReel labelFigure 1: Reel markingsThe following table contains the reel dimensions.Ordering codeDescriptionReel diameter [mm]-R77" reel177.8-R13" reel330.2Table 1: Reel dimensions1159720 1485

3Tape componentsIn the embossed tape-and-reel configuration, electronic components are placed in pockets embossed inthe carrier tape. The cover tape is sealed to the carrier tape to encase the components in the pockets.The following figure shows the typical tape components.Cover tapeCarrier tapeReel with label areaFigure 2: Tape componentsCover tapeThe cover tape is sealed by hot sealing. The pull strength limit for the cover tape is 20 to 120 grams whenit is pulled at an angle of 175 to 180 with a peel-off speed of 300 10 mm/min.Carrier tapeThe minimum leader part, or the length from the tape edge of the feeding side to the first component inthe carrier tape, is 400 mm. The carrier tape material is conductive polystyrene.The following dimensions are used in Figure 3: Carrier tape dimensions on page 7 and Table 2: Carriertape dimensions on page 7.P Pitch between cavity centersW Width of carrier tapeA Dimension of cavity adjusted for component widthB Dimension of cavity adjusted for component lengthd Distance between sprocket holes, 4 mmThe following figure illustrates the basic dimensions of the carrier tape. The center of the cavity is locatedin the middle between the sprocket holes.1159720 1486
